Sunday Walk: Wendens Ambo Circular

17.5 km., 10.8 ml. Difficulty 3/10 (short version)
Gently rolling hills, impressive old cottages, pretty villages (particularly in spring - it's spring, right?), thatch, pargeting, an old church and a friendly lunch pub.
The full walk is a bit long for the time of year so the short cut is recommended.
Trains: Get the 10:13 Cambridge train  from Liverpool Street to Audley End station, arriving 11:22. (The station is named after the local stately home).
Get a return to Audley End. Trains return from there at xx:47 and xx:10.
Lunch: The Axe and Compasses in Arkesden 01799 550272.
If any Billy or Milly Whizzes are up for the full 14.7 mile circuit, their pub would be The Red Cow, Chrishall, 01763 838 792
Tea: There are two pubs in Wendens Ambo , the CAMRA-recognised Bell, slightly off your route to the station and, further away, the Fighting Cocks, past the station turnoff and across the main road. Directions to both in the text.
Directions are here

Walk not possible due to overhead power supply being cut by a fallen tree. Trains were only running as far as Broxbourne. Route was changed due to unrelated engineering work resulting in much slower speed. As a bonus this afforded passengers a slow drive-by viewing of the new Tottenham Hotspurs stadium which looks most impressive.
I saw no other walkers and did the Cheshunt to Broxbourne walk in bright sunshine with just a few showers.
